No Court Date

is the word we got today...waiting on some paper work...so the insanely hard and emotional wait continues...if someone has any extra strength could you send it my way as mine seems to have left the building...

Good news is Ade is healthy again and doing better!!! This has us feeling relieved. We are happy beyond happy that he is fighting to stay healthy but what we really want is for him to be here with us where we can watch over him and care for him and be the ones to comfort him.

Oh thank God Ade is feeling better! I've been thinking of him lots and wondering how he and you guys are doing.

Sending you strength while you wait for a court date... This is agonizing.

Have they given you a reason? I noticed people who got their referral a month after yours have their dates now. What is going on? I am going insane over here for you!

Is there anything I can do at all for you? If so, please just ask. As you said before, this is torture, plain and simple.

I am glad to hear he is feeling better. :)

Tova said...

Yeah! for Ade feeling better!

Boo! To no court date!

I hate the irrationality of adoption.
I hate how your hearts are at the mercy of politics and red tape.
I'm low on strength these days, but I will keep you company in this low time.

Hugs.

Rana, I have been following your journey with your adoption. I feel that both you and Yvan are Angel's from God for this little boy. My admiration level for what you folks are doing; is as high as it gets.

I dont know what you think about God; however I want you to know that I have a very good relationship with Christ and pray every day for you to get what you and Yvan need; to get your Son....

Please take some of my strength....

So glad Ade is feeling better, and hey - they did tell you something!
(I'm trying Rana - really trying)

((hugs)) and a little strength! :)

Sorry to hear that you have no date- I have no strength to send your way but I am thinking of you.

Rana - I hope you hear better news about court soon.
I'm glad Ade is feeling better. But what he really needs is his mom and dad. So - Come on court!

bcbevans said...

Rana...

Strength is something you have portrayed throughout this whole process without even knowing it. You are strength - you possess it and you will do this!! So sorry to hear you dont have a date yet but the right time will come and he will be in your arms...

Thinking of you and offering whatever I can muster of "strength" to send your way. Just be sure to send it back when you are finished with it.lol.

Blessings

Rana. I think you pretty much know what I think about all this already. YOU NEED A COURT DATE. I'm so glad he's healthy again. But I won't stop praying that he comes home soon. I'm so sorry that you didn't get the news we were all waiting for today. Hopefully R returns with better news!

hazel said...

This bites beyond reason. I'm still counting on R pulling something out of her hat for you shortly. In the meantime and beyond, I am right here for you.

Sigh!
I just ate 4 frozen chocolate cookie`s on your behalf. My waist line isn`t convinced this is the best way to lend strength ... :)
Glad to hear your son is healthy and well again - a bit of a silver lining heading into the weekend.
One foot in front of the other, or one tear after another - do whatever you need to do to trudge your way through this.
all of our best wishes,

So glad Ade is feeling better! Totally sucky about court. What a crapshoot this process is! The end result is sooo worth it but sometimes it doesn't feel that way when you're in the middle! I will courier you some strength right away. Love ya!!

Steph :-)

Julie said...

Ugh. This is taking too long. I am sorry. Really happy to hear he is healthy though.

Natalie and Chris said...

I'm so sorry for you and can't imagine what you are going through. I'm definitely sending you the extra strenght I have.
I'm very happy to hear Ade is feeling better but I know he would be much much much better in his mommy and daddy's arms.

Dianne said...

Oh Rana! I'm so sorry. What nonsense. I'm with Haze. May R work some magic for you. Uttering words not made for Blogland on your behalf. And saying prayers for you too, which is probably the more rational of the two.

So thankful to hear that Ade is showing his champion strength by getting healthy again. That little boy must know that there are parents worth staying strong for.

Kendra said...

Oh Rana, I hope they gave you a reason and maybe a bit of a timeline as to when you can expect a court date! Glad Ade is feeling better and watching for good news from you soon.

Lisa and Jason said...

Oh Rana. . . how bittersweet. I'm so happy to hear that Ade is feeling better but UURRGGGHHHH!!!! about the court date!!!! Here's to hoping R can get stuff moving for you and bring home great news!

Lisa

Littleone said...

Oh Rana,

I am so sorry to hear this. This waiting can be so hard. It is so hard to understand why things happen. Wish I could sit down and join you in a pitty drink!

I promise to tell him his mommy and daddy are on their way and doing everything they can to get to him.

Brendan and Mary said...

I am so relieved to hear that you know that he is doing better. I just emailed you and then opened this board to find this comment...I am so sorry. Nothing else to say really except this sucks!!! We're always thinking of you and Ade.

Anonymous said...

I was hoping with all my heart that you would get good news this week. God knows you deserve it!!! All my body parts were crossed. I am really happy that Ade is feeling better. I just know that he will be at his best when he is home with you guys! Let's do something ridiculous and indulgent tomorrow! You need it! I will call you!

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Rana I've been following your journey for some time now. I'm so glad to hear little Ade is feeling better and I'll definately be praying for your family. I hope things get rolling next week, you guys have waited so long!! God bless L. Galloway

tobink said...

I am so happy Ade is feeling better.

But I just don't know what to say about this court business. "No Court Date" was NOT the post I've been stalking your blog to find!

Uggh - I can't even imagine how that news must have hit you and Yvan.

Like everyone else who thinks about you and your little boy every day, I hope the paperwork issue is a minor one - resolved ASAP, and that CAFAC makes it a priority to secure you a (successful!) court date.

So sorry. As far as I can tell, you have been the Queen of both Grace and Strength throughout this ordeal, but I'm sure you'd be more than happy to abdicate.

Hang in there!

Claudia said...

oh honey... sending you the biggest hug you ever had in your LIFE.

Rowan Family said...

All our best -

Liz said...

Hoping for good news for you soon!

Rhonda, Kristin, Eden said...

Rana & Yvan, I'm sorry. How dissapointing to hear that news, your time is coming. Paper snags are such a BIT*& in Ethiopia! I'm so happy Ade is much better, Eden blew him kisses, that must have done it

Chad, Laura and Sara said...

Oh come on! This is getting ridiculous - talk about torture. Think about you and hoping things are brighter soon. Borrow all you need from me (but I will need it back next Monday when we find out the results of the Imagine renewal). Cheers, Laura

darci said...

K_I_T_ said...
